Tommy Dreamer recently did an interview with Phil Strum of the Poughkeepsie Journal. Some highlights:
On what he will do next: "I have been contacted by TNA. May go there. If not, I'm very, very happy and content. I'm seriously working every weekend up until right now to September straight. I did two movies, I've been writing two films that I'm hoping to get sold. It wasn't just a spur-of-the-moment thing. I've been working on this for quite some time." Note: Dreamer's no-compete clause will end on April 5, as his release was official on January 4.
On TNA's move to Mondays: "Not the smartest move on TNA's behalf. I learned with the original ECW: the WWE machine cannot be destroyed. Nor should it be. There's enough piece of the pie. To go head to head wasn't the smartest move for a lot of different reasons. Everyone makes their mistakes. The ratings the first week were not good and favorable. Hopefully, they will continue. I think they had their niche on Thursday nights. They should have stayed and maybe just done specials on Monday nights."
On Monday night being "wrestling night": "If NBC had Thursday Night Football and wanted to move it to Mondays. Why? If we're all wrestling fans, we want to watch wrestling any day of the week. Just like, if I'm a football fan, I want to watch it Monday, Thursday, Sunday."
